    Another Just Transition

    Chad Raphael organized a session entitled “Another Just Transition: Community-Engaged Research and Learning for Environmental Justice” at the annual conference of the Association for Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).

Chelsea Wait (Ph.D. candidate and Adjunct Professor, School of Architecture and Urban Planning) presented on the Buildings-Landscapes-Cultures Field School, a university-community partnership that engages community members and students in storytelling, ecological conservation, heritage preservation, and civic engagement.
